Odhiambo, what is Pre Congregation?  Huh?

Hi Bailey.
Pre-congregation canonization is how the early saints of the Church were declared to be saints i.e, by popular acclamation as opposed to the present day lengthy process.
The exact dates  of these early canonizations are therefore not available.

Saint Anectus
Martyr

Anectus, aka Anicetus was born in Greece. During the persecutions of Christians under Emperor Dioclatian, He was arrested, tortured, and martyred with a group of fellow Christians, most likely in Caesarea, Palestine in modern Israel. He was reportedly thrown to wild animals but when the animals did not maul him, he was beheaded in.258.

Ah, "santo subito!"  at John Paul's funeral.  I think that was a better process.

Yep, something like that  Smiley
Vox populi, vox Dei!  Grin
Well, if saints are made in heaven as we Catholics believe, then the method of canonization should not matter too much.
The good Lord would see to it that only saints are canonized  Grin

Saint Gerald.
Abbot
Disciple of Saint Colman of Lindesfarne


Gerald was born in Northumbria, England. He became a monk at Lindesfarne. When the Celtic traditions in the liturgy were forbidden in Northumbria, Greald left England in protest. He entered a monastery on the island Innisboffin off the coast of Ireland. When the English and Irish monks there quarreled, he built a monastery for English monks on the main land. He succeeded Saint Colman who had been abbot of both monasteries, as abbot of the English monastery in Mayo.
It is believed that Saint Gerald founded a convent and two other monasteries.
He died on 13 March 731 in Galway, Ireland and is buried at Mayo, Ireland.
He was canonized Pre-Congregation

Saint Peter and
Saint Aphrodisius of Africa
Martyrs

Peter and Aphrodisius were martyred by Arian Vandals who conquered North Africa in the 5th century. The saints defended the orthodox faith against these heretics. That was the reason for their martyrdom. Nothing else is known about them.
Saint Peter of Africa,
